The guy tried to do something that constitutes as a recruiting violation, and Kiffin called him out on it. I'm not so sure why this is so bad. While you may not like the manner in which he's done so, Kiffin is trying to make sure that in the future, his recruits don't get stolen away from him because of Meyer's illegal actions. It's just really weird to me that everyone is fine with the fact that Meyer cheated, but not fine with the fact that Kiffin trash talked, although I guess that's bound to happen when the most popular team among posters here is involved.
The fact that it isn't a violation might have something to do with people agreeing with Meyer. Kiffin is an idiot and doesn't know recruting rules. I knew it when he said it that he was wrong. The reason he apologized was because the head of the SEC came out and said Kiffin is an idiot because he does not know the rules and there was no violation. Further, he told Kiffin to learn the rules because he expects his coaches to know the rules. Maybe he doesn't know the rules, which is why he has been accused about 10 times of violations himself this recruiting term, or maybe (and most likely) he just wanted to take a swipe at the university. Either way, to say they violated a rule they didn't is slanderous and HE was disciplined by the SEC.
and by the way you are looking the wrong way about stealing recruits using illegal means. Like LSU said above, it wasn't just Florida that he pulled some shady things on to steal his own players.
